Travel Document (Certificate of Identity):


Why do you require a Travel Document?

The High Commission in collaboration with the Maldives Immigration provides temporary travel document to Maldivians who do not have a passport to travel back to Maldives. Usually Travel documents are issued for new-born babies, and for those who have lost their existing passport.



Upon submission of application, the High Commission will issue the travel document within 10 working days if all the necessary application requirements are met. Certificate of Identity is valid for 15 days from the date of issue.



Photo service is provided at the High Commission. If the applicant wishes to bring his/her own photo, it must comply with the Immigration guidelines. In this case, High Commission will ONLY accept soft copy of the photo.
